Ages: 10 and up.
Materials: Free! – It’s time for me to use these up. (They sell on Amazon for $13.50 so this is a great deal.)
Most kids at Gadget Lab will tell you that soldering is their favorite activity, probably because it’s not child-proof. It’s also cool to melt metal. For this one odd day that kicks off the MCPS summer break, I’m offering an all-day soldering workshop.
I bought a bunch of goofy ‘electric ear’ kits from Radio Shack when they closed and it’s time to make them work. If the kids don’t know how to solder, I’ll teach them. Kids with experience can dive right in.
The irons are very hot, so this workshop is definitely for kids who can sit and focus.
